Threshold Entertainment, who made the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie, is going back to the video game well. While many games today actually have Hollywood-sized budgets (or larger) and deep, engrossing stories, Threshold isn’t join after any of those - no, they’re making Tetris: The Movie.
But don’t worry, it’s not just going to be a movie about meticulously stacking boxes or shipping containers. Nay, it will be an “epic sci-fi adventure” according to THR’s report. Tetris Company will also produce.
The managing director of the latter, Henk Rogers, underlined the initial thought - that is, how do you make an epic sci-fi adventure about a game where you drop shapes to create full straight lines that then disappear ad nauseum - by saying, “In this new universe, as you’ll soon find out, there’s much more to Tetris than simply clearing lines.”
No timer was set for how long they have to piece the film together. Hopefully Threshold and Tetris are a perfect fit, and it doesn’t all pile up rapidly to end in disaster and frustration. There’s also no word on whether it’ll all be in green scale, you know, for the full nostalgia effect.
